Cyno01: 100% of plane crashes happen during landing.


Not at all true. But you know that, right?

Take-off is the single most dangerous time for a plane. Both statistically and logically.

In this story 33% of the crash was in the air.  First crash was in air contact, then two separate crashes as they met the earth.

That's not a crash, that's a ramp incident. The ramp isn't controlled ground.

As someone with a mere 10 solo hours left before attaining his private license, bullshiat, son.

Try flying blind through clouds, in mountainous terrain, with no instrumentation operable.

Breaking! The awful HuffPo headline has been corrected. It now reads: "California Plane Crashes: 1 Reported Dead After Midair Collision."

Apparently the other plane flew off undamaged. Or a plane crashed with itself. Or something.

The Feds were watching Nicky play golf for so long that they ran out of gas. Just what I needed, right in front of the control board.

I drove by the one on the golf course this morning on the way to work.  It's still there.

The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.

The plane is still sitting on the right side of the 6th fairway. Got a good look at it coming into work this morning. I wonder if the y let the people on the tee play through?

Was it a hole in one?
 
2013-04-30 11:07:23 AM  
No, it was not whole at all, mostly large pieces.  (Actually it was pretty intact).  I was going to take a pic, but I was driving and there were cops there.

It's really the only sensible thing to do, if its done safely. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

The plane hit the trees, did a 180°, then landed softly?

So it landed backwards? That's pretty freaking nifty.

You're splitting hairs. It is, to all intents and purposes, a crash on the ground.

If you found yourself suddenly "going backwards" couldn't you just turn to around in the basket and say "now it's forwards"?

/not snarky, just never been in a ballon

You could say that, but it's a bit like saying a horse's tail is a fifth leg: just 'cause you say it doesn't make it so. It's the orientation of some of the burner valves, gauges and scoop (for those that have 'em) that determines forwards and backwards.

Back in my day, son, you had to be VFR qualified before you could do IFR. I hate to break it to you, but Microsoft Flight Simulator isn't quite the same as the real thing.
